What Daschle Plans to Do About the Healthcare Crisis

Daschle Book Cover"The time has come, finally, to fix our broken health-care system," says Tom Daschle in the close of best-selling book, "Critical: What We Can to Do About the Healthcare." Daschle, of course, is Obama's choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services. Daschle will also lead a new White House office of health reform.

To paraphrase General Patton, "Daschle, you magnificent bastard, we read your book!" Which is what all pharmaceutical executives and marketers should do. After all, Daschle warns that the "health-care industry would have to reconsider its business model" and he include pharmaceutical companies as part of the "health-care industry."
